AMMAN — Top Employers Institute has certified JTI as one of only 11 “Global Top Employers”, for the eighth consecutive year, acknowledging the company’s continuing commitment and innovative approach to equality and wellbeing for its employees.  On top of this global recognition, JTI was certified 3 years in a row in all six regions in which it operates: North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa. The company added two further countries to its award roster and is now a Top Employer in 66 nations worldwide, including JTI Jordan. اضافة اعلان

“We are delighted that JTI has retained its place in the elite of Global Top Employers. They should be proud of their status as a world leader in people practices, and the ongoing commitment they show to improving the wellbeing of all their employees across the world. Their latest success in being certified as a global equality employer is a standard to emulate for those companies who wish to become a top employer too,” said David Plink, CEO of Top Employers Institute.

Mr. Andy Stevens, general manager of JTI Jordan and Palestine commented: “We are honored by this announcement, which we consider a new achievement to add to our long list in this field. For JTI International and Jordan, our employees are the priority. They come at the heart of everything we do, and this is the primary motivation for striving towards providing them with the best working environment. JTI Jordan this year will focus on the areas of well being, diversity, inclusion and rewards, in addition to the overall strategy for individuals.”

He added: “At JTI Jordan, we consider providing growth opportunities and creating the best environment and working conditions to our employees as one of our top priorities. This applies to the 40,000 colleagues around the world and we will continue to do so without stopping.”

Around all of its branches, JTI has set itself ambitious goals for the coming years to benefit, support, and engage with current and future talent. The organization will continue to focus on employee wellbeing by adapting and improving the company’s work environment, be that in the office or at home. Current employees will have access to numerous remote team building initiatives, focusing on a healthy work/life balance and personal development. In following this perspective, potential future employees will be invited to take part in JTI’s “Make It Bright Challenge”, where students from around the world compete for paid global internships, which could lead to permanent positions. These programs, alongside its other world-leading initiatives, will reinforce JTI’s status as a top employer.

Top Employers Institute is the global authority on recognizing excellence in people practices, and this year notably commended JTI for: embedding equal opportunities and equal pay throughout the company, which EY recognized in November 2021 when they awarded JTI with one of the first Global Equality Standard (GES) certificates; and its commitment to employee wellbeing through world-leading initiatives such as flexible working measures, its progressive global family leave policy, rolled out in 2021, and its women’s empowerment program TOGETHER.
